It is very rewarding to work with these cases and help owners and their dogs blossom into a new happy relationship using evidence based, ethical behaviour modification and training.
Dogs are a domesticated species; their behaviour is very different to wild canines. Using wolf behaviour as a model for our pet dogs isn’t doing our them any favours! Understanding the natural behavioural needs and motivations of dogs is key in accurately diagnosing the root cause of any behaviour problem, the majority of which are caused by stress or fear.
